Brussels. Basilique du Sacre-Coeur

Nefer • 3 minutes read • August 22nd, 2016

Basilique du Sacré-Coeur

 is one of the five largest churches in the world. Its construction has been dated to the 75th anniversary celebration of the country's independence, and the first stone was placed by the King of Belgium. However, the construction of 

Basilique du Sacré-Coeur

wasn't completed until 1960. The internal structure of the basilica is symbolic - it has 9 chapels that represent the 9 provinces of Belgium, and another one, symbolizing the Belgian Congo colony.
